Premium Gyokuro Green Tea

Descripción

Gyokuro Premium is regarded as one of the highest quality green teas produced in Japan, which is high praise indeed coming from the birthplace of tea culture. Cultivated almost exclusively in the fields of Uji in Japan’s ancient capital of Kyoto, Gyokuro green tea is one of Japan’s finest grades of green tea.

Part of Gyokuro’s revered reputation and uniquely smooth and characteristically sweet taste comes from the unique methods with which it is harvested. The young bushes from which the leaves are plucked are kept in the shade from the sun with dark straw mats. At the end of 20 to 30 days the leaves are then plucked using the “Tana” method, requiring great care and  expert technique. After they are hand picked, the leaves are then steamed lightly before being rolled, twisted and dried.

The process for making Gyokuro Premium tea is the opposite of Japan’s other popular type of tea, Sencha, which is left exposed in the sunlight. Shading the tea plants helps to turn Gyokuro leaves a vivid, chlorophyll-rich green and is what gives the tea produced an elegant sweet flavour.

Gyokuro Premium tea is regarded as a very exclusive and luxurious type of tea. Its reputation also comes from its elegant aroma, sweet taste, and light green colour.
